Dr. Duck’s Bird Sculptures Exhibit at the Nature Center

August 6, 2016

BVAS is hosting an exhibit of 25 metal bird sculptures in August at the BVAS Nature Center.  These works of art were created by Oceanside sculptor Paul Weber, sometimes known as “Dr. Duck.”

The free exhibit will run for two weeks, August 6-21.  Guests can view the sculptures during the Nature  Center’s operating hours (Tue.-Sat. 10 a.m.-4 p.m.; Sun. 1-4 p.m.; closed Mon).

Preview Reception—A preview reception at the Nature Center on Friday, August 5, from 6:30-8:30 p.m., will give guests a chance to meet the artist.  Light refreshments will be served.

Kids’ Art Project—Local artist and BVAS educator Chris Clark will hold a free painting workshop for kids (ages 6 and up) on Saturday, August 6th from 1-4 PM at the BVAS Nature Center. Using a contour drawing technique, Chris will show participants how to make their own unique bird painting. Class size is limited; please RSVP by August 1, 2016.  Call us at (760) 439-2473 or come by the BVAS Nature Center and sign up at the list at the front desk.

Paul’s alter persona was created almost 20 years ago after several of his metal bird sculptures began to mysteriously appear around the grounds of the Nature Center.  Each morning following the appearance of a new sculpture, a note would be found with the message, “Dr. Duck was here.”  This public exhibit  finally gives BVAS a chance to officially recognize Paul and thank Dr. Duck for the art that has delighted Nature Center visitors for so many years.
